Yoomi wants a yellow belt. But she’s afraid to break the board. Grandma to the rescue!

Yoomi and her friends are ready to take on the test for their yellow belts in taekwondo. But Yoomi is afraid to break a board. Meanwhile, Grandma is struggling to learn something new, too.

But Yoomi and Grandma encourage and inspire each other. Yoomi discovers how, with persistence, focus, deep breathing, and above all, a loving Grandma, even the toughest challenges can be overcome.

This companion to No Kimchi for Me emphasizes self-confidence, determination, and the value of family. Backmatter about taekwondo, including some Korean vocabulary, is included.

Six-year-old Yoomi lives with her parents and two older brothers, Jun and Yoon. Grandma, who lives nearby, loves to come over and cook yummy Korean food and teach Yoomi and teach the children Korean language and culture.

Thanks to Grandma, Yoomi knows how to count from one to ten in Korean—which comes in handy when she practices taekwondo! Yoomi feels so proud to know all the words already.

Yoomi is the youngest in the family, but she is determined, has strong opinions, and always wants to learn and grow. Please join Yoomi on her adventures—she’s a girl who never gives up (especially when Grandma is there to help!) and who’s always happy with small victories.
